I would NOT recommend Dr. Muro. He showed no compassion or understanding. His manner was flippant and condescending. I have had two previous spinal surgeries (performed by someone else), and have had Degenerative Disc Disease and Osteoarthritis for over 14 years. I did not appreciate his attitude...Read More
